I've been a strong advocate of strict feature freezes so don't 
misunderstand me. OTOH it is still legitimate IMO to ask for exceptions 
and let the RMs or the wider Core Team decide. Rules are fine, but they 
get wrong when they become written in stone.

Yes, absolutely.

As for "new-new", well, I don't know how to call it ;-) Maybe "EM 6.0"?
